11st 5lb

J: Brian Hughes

Won three races late last year (two novice events and a handicap); hampered by a faller when third in a Catterick handicap in January, but disappointing over C&D last time; needs to bounce back.

J: Theo Gillard

Completed a hat-trick on his handicap debut at Musselburgh in December, again making all; finished a remote third last time but suffered some severe mid-race interference and no surprise should he bounce back; trip/ground fine.

T: Donald McCain

Like so many from his yard, he's having an excellent season and he completed a hat-trick on his handicap debut at Musselburgh in December, again making all; his previous win came over this C&D on good ground; more required under top weight but it's unlikely we've seen the best of him yet.

Won a C&D novice (1m7f, soft) in October and made it 2-2 in this hood when again making all with something in hand at Catterick (2m3f, good) recently; begins handicap life on a fair mark and is in good hands to progress.

13l second to useful Flat recruit on hurdle debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, good) last month then readily went one better at Musselburgh (1m7f, soft) in a first-time hood (retained); bred to be even better over today's longer trip and he has leading claims under a 6lb penalty.

Placed last month in his two bumpers (2m, good) and, while no match for a useful Flat recruit on recent hurdle debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, good), he beat the rest with something to spare; respected in a first-time hood.

Shaped with promise in two good-ground bumpers last month, more recently when second to one of Nicky Henderson's at Bangor, and has a good pedigree for jumping; high on the list.

T: Donald McCain

Well beaten in a maiden Irish point in May; 7-2 on rules debut in a Stratford bumper (good) this month, when he acquitted himself well in third of seven; should improve when going up in trip but can still be competitive here with that positive experience under his belt.
